Forum: etree Subject: Very slow downloading

Hello,

I would like to know why some downloading are fast and others very slow.

For example,http://www.archive.org/details/Wunderbach is very slow, the bitrate doesn't exceed 50kbytes/s
and this one http://www.archive.org/details/DischargeLive16_11_2008
exceeds 500kbytes per second up to 1Mbytes/s and sometimes it's more.

Download speeds depend on the server a fileset resides on. If the server is hosting a particularly popular fileset, then downloads of everything on that server will be slower than normal.

Nothing - if a server is slow for you, it's slow for everyone until the popularity of the show on it dies down. Sorry!

Do you know the name of the show ? Is it one of mine ?

There's no real way to figure that out, unfortunately.

oh yes It's a pity.

I would like to understand just a little bit more about the running of you serveurs, and the download. Do you have a technical sheet or something like that ?

I don't have a data sheet (I'm a volunteer, not an engineer) but you may be able to get some information by clicking on the item's history (Contribution Center > completed tasks) and clicking the server number. Lots of tech info there though I'm not sure what you're looking for.

There's an article on the new data center here:
